  • The NM Medical Review Commission screens medical malpractice claims.






NM Medical Review Commission

The New Mexico Medical Review Commission was created by Section 41-5-14 of the New Mexico Medical Malpractice Act and was enacted in 1976. The Medical Malpractice Act mandates the screening of all applications of alleged medical malpractice against a qualified medical provider by the Medical Review Commission. The Act provides for three panel members from the medical profession and three panel members from the State Bar to review each application.

CLE Fee Waiver Opportunity

The New Mexico Medical Review Commission, in an effort to recruit new Commission members and to reward existing members, is offering panelists the opportunity to have their fee waived on NMMRC's Dec. 19 five-hour CLE program on medical malpractice law. The requirement is to serve on four panels before Dec. 1. Current members should watch for more information in their next panel pack. Those seeking to become members should sign up online.
